Asaram now seeks bail for 'ayurvedic treatment' of Covid

Jaipur, May 10 (TIWN) Self-styled godman and rape convict Asaram, who is undergoing treatment at AIIMS after testing Covid positive in Jodhpur jail, on Monday moved the Rajasthan High Court for two months interim bail to continue his treatment further via ayurveda.

A two-judge bench of justices Sandeep Mehta and Devendra Kachhawaha, after hearing the petition, directed that the AIIMS submit Asaram's medical report in the court. The court has listed the matter for next hearing on May 13. Asaram's counsel Pradeep Choudhary said the court was on Monday hearing an application moved by him for suspension of sentence and interim bail. The application was moved in the high court some time back, he said. Choudhary told the court that Asaram is suffering from many diseases and recently, contracted Covid-19. He has been admitted to the AIIMS-Jodhpur for the disease's treatment, the counsel said. "He has been suffering from many ailments and has interest in taking ayurvedic treatment in Haridwar (in Uttarakhand). We have sought bail so that he can go there and avail treatment of his faith," Choudhary said. Asaram was sentenced to life in prison in 2018 after a court here found him guilty of raping the girl in his ashram in 2013. She was 16 years old.
